Emergency!

Promotion - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: After Roy's had his arm bandaged in the ER, Brackett points to the treatment room Johnny's in and says he's in 4, and Roy heads there. Then after speaking to Johnny, when Roy opens the door to leave Johnny's treatment room, we can see the treatment room facing Johnny's, and it's treatment 2, which means that Johnny is actually in treatment 1, not 4. Plus the fact that the boy with the heart problem is supposed to be in treatment 1 at that time.

The Old Engine - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When the guy (Michael Conrad) with the gunshot wound is being wheeled out of the treatment room there is nothing on his face, but in the shot from the hallway as they exit the room suddenly he has a tube inserted into his nostril with tape holding it in place.

Body Language - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: After the cropduster crashes, when Roy and Johnny pull the pilot out of the overturned aircraft and begin working on him, Johnny's medical holster with penlight, forceps and scissor is clipped at his right hip and the other holster's at his left hip, but when Johnny shouts to Chet about giving the victim oxygen, Johnny's holsters have switched sides.

Messin' Around - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: When Station 51 is dispatched to an 'unknown type rescue', the woman who opens the door tells them she didn't call, and when Roy asks her if he and Johnny can check on her sick husband, Roy's second shirt button is open and his undershirt is visible, but in the next shot it's buttoned up again.

The Promise - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Dr. Brackett are on 127's Snorkel while Johnny is trying to subdue Richard on the ledge, Brackett is not wearing any rings, but after loading Richard into the Stokes, when Brackett is grabbing hold of the basket in the closeup he's wearing two rings on his left hand, which vanish in following shots.

The Old Engine - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Roy and Johnny are on the roof with Harriet, we can see the shadow being cast by the utility pole on the street down below, and when the police car shows up moments later that shadow has changed significantly. (00:12:40)

The Promise - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: When Roy and John walk into Edna Self's house, in her closeups she's wearing a light beige floral robe, but in the shots facing the guys we can see that it's a dark solid color robe that's on the chair. Notice how odd it is that the three are not in any shots together - Edna's not in any shots facing John and Roy, and they're not in any shots facing her.

Insomnia - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: When Engine 51 gets the run in the middle of the night, the engine company rushes to the rig including Johnny, which leaves Roy standing in the dorm alone. After he shouts out to Johnny from the doorway, when Roy turns to go back into the dorm, some changes have occurred - the locker room door is now closed, there are clothes lying on Cap's bed where none were a moment ago, etc.

Inferno - S3-E21

Continuity mistake: While the judge and young lawyer are doing CPR to help, Roy's tearing off strips of tape and placing them on his pants (for IV as usual), then after he asks Johnny, "Were you able to get in touch with Rampart?," in the next shot all those strips of tape have vanished from his pant leg, only to reappear when Roy defibs the patient.

How Green Was My Thumb? - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: Before they bring in the young girl who fell (with a dog bite), Dixie tells Brackett that she'll set up for her in treatment 1, and after Squad 95 brings her in, when Brackett and the paramedic (Donald Mantooth) leave the room we see that she is indeed in treatment 1, which is beside receiving. However, when Brackett takes the parents to see her, they go through the door that's between the double doors and treatment 2, which are on the opposite side of the hallway from treatment 1. Then in the next shot they're back in treatment 1.

Computer Error - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Early and Marcia's father stand outside her semi-private room, number 104, we see treatment 4 is right beside it. There are two problems with this bizarre situation. First, when Dixie gave Early the lab results about Marcia's possible pregnancy earlier, treatment 2 is right beside treatment 4, not the semi-private room 104. Second problem is that when Early and the parents walk into Marcia's room, in the interior shots we can see that there's a perpendicular wall right beside the doorway to its left, where the hallway ends. (00:19:20 - 00:31:30)

Snakebite - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: When Johnny, Roy, and Chet are at the site of the traffic accident, during this scene the shadows' lengths - from long, to short, back to long, and its directions keep changing drastically. Such as when Chet stands in the middle of the road, looking in the direction of the vehicle with the siren, his long shadow is cast to his left, but the oncoming vehicle also casts a shadow to its left (even though it's heading towards Chet), then in the next shot that vehicle's shadow has moved to its opposite side.

Snakebite - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: At the start, there's a long shot of the Land Rover driving down a long stretch of road towards the camera and then passing it. That road, landscape, and mountains are very distinctive. As Roy, John, and Chet continue talking and driving, when they reach the scene of a traffic accident, Chet sets up a flare behind the Land Rover and another flare behind the pickup truck, then Chet sees a car coming from the direction which the Land Rover was headed. The problem is that the road/landscape/mountains shown earlier in the long shot of the Land Rover, which had been driving from the opposite direction, is the same that's shown here, as Chet tries to stop the car. Then to top it off, when Chet first notices the second car in the distance, it's coming from the opposite direction of the first car, but once again the view is exactly the same.

An English Visitor - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Brackett is in his office talking to Patsy's manager, he's paged and then told, "Treatment room 2, STAT," and he answers, "On my way," but Brackett doesn't rush to treatment room 2, he goes to room 230 which is Patsy's room, and Early even calls for a code blue in room 230.

An English Visitor - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Brackett and Morton are with Patsy in her hospital room, there are two closeups of the Datascope 850, but there's an entirely different unit at the foot of Patsy's bed monitoring her EKG, not the Datascope 850. The same thing happens again later, when Brackett rushes in and Early tells him that Patsy was throwing more PVCs.

Messin' Around - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: At the start of the episode, after Chet takes a spoonful of hot cheddar cheese the bowl is near his plate, but when it cuts to facing the other guys that bowl is on the other side of the table near Marco, then back and forth again.

The Old Engine - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: While Squad 51 is out on the run (quite literally) with the female OD, Johnny gets a cut on his elbow which he keeps fidgeting with even after it's bandaged. When Roy and Johnny get back to the station and see the old engine, Johnny's cut has vanished.

Body Language - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: When Roy tells Johnny to call Barbara, who heard something that he didn't even say at the movies, in the view from the kitchen Engine 51 is not in the apparatus bay which means everyone else is on a run, but when dispatch drops tones we hear Captain Stanley respond KMG365, and then see the engine parked in the bay.

Quotes

[Henry, the dog who is never ever off the couch, whimpers.]
Johnny: [Talking to Henry, while typing on the typewriter.] Sorry. Didn't mean to disturb you. Acting kinda uppity aren't you? I may put you in the script. Yeah. A dog that does nothing. [Henry whimpers.] Just sits there. People like that, y'know. A schleppy dog. You'll schlep out on stage and schleep on the couch. Dumb dog! [Henry whimpers.] Making me feel guilty. Why don't you howl or something?

Mistakes

When Roy is electrocuted and falls from the roof, after Karen uses the defibrillator paddles on Roy, she lifts both paddles, looks at the EKG monitor and says "He's converted." How exactly could Karen have known that he's converted? It's impossible for the EKG monitor to show anything at all. Either the defib paddles have be in contact with Roy's body for the “quick-look” to get a reading, which they weren't, or the ECG electrode discs have to be on Roy's chest connecting him to the EKG monitor, and they weren't. As an aside, just watching Marco having problems attaching the air mask, and quickly glancing up towards the camera frustrated, then giving up is priceless.
